Checking process accompanying project to clean and transfer data from one database(?) to another, two content points in the checklist are: "Prüfung des Leerstands" and "Unterlagen: Reportliste (insbesondere hinsichtlich der Leerstandsdokumentation). What does this mean in DV context? Thanks!

checking contents of folders / empty folder check
Explanation:
I think this is a routine that checks all of the folder names in a selmected memor space (C-drive, D-drive, etc.) to check whether they contain any doucments. This is a usual clean-up function for IT managers, so as to make sure that
a) excessive space is not taken by empty folders and
b) the structuire does not become overly complicated.
The "Unterlagen: Reoportliste" would be a report that lists all the documents under the name of each folder, probably showing the full path, like
C:\MyDocuments\Correspondence\ABC Company etc.
